|Atari 2600: Tempest (Prototype)|
Review of Tempest from atariprotos.com: On the list of games that should never have been tried on the 2600, Tempest has to be near the top. Why Atari decided they could reproduce a 3D vector game on the 2600 is beyond me, but the results were disastrous. Thankfully Atari killed off this experiment gone wrong before it could hurt anybody. I've said it once and I'll say it again; If there's one thing the 2600 doesn't do it's diagonals...

|Atari 2600: Demon Attack|
Easily one of the most loved games on the 2600, Demon Attack is a shooter that really shows off the colorful graphics that were a staple of the Imagic library. At first glance one might mistake Demon Attack for Phoenix. This is due to the waves of bird-like aliens that swoop down at your lonely laser cannon. The pulsing sounds rise in pitch as you destroy the creatures one by one. Just when you think you've wiped them all out, another wave begins, this time even harder than the last one...
